God, how long have I been sitting on this? Title is a total placeholder, by the by; I will probably change it at some point because as-is it’s aggressively generic.
Anyway, this is a story I’ve been toying with for a while; you play as a novice guard of a merchant caravan on a diplomatic mission; the setting has just been through major upheaval, so it’s a particularly delicate thing to establish this stuff. The plan is to have a set of names to chose from to avoid what I like to call “dongs syndrome”, in addition to choosing your gender and religious faction.
As far as plot goes, in addition to the overarching “don’t screw up so badly it ruins the mission”, there are smaller things to investigate that affect your standing with the town (recent spate of deaths in certain shrines, sharp uptick in undead appearances causing strife between religious sects, the strange circumstances of the deaths of a lot of the town’s leadership, things along those lines), as well as the opportunity to build bonds with some of the locals. Your player character is pretty young, so while that lets them get away with a bit more shenanigans, you’re also limited in what you can do.
Also, you are a member of a species of giant carnivorous hexapodal therapods, may have forgotten to mention that. All of the characters are, really. Giant fluffbirds only in these parts.
I have most of the major plot points sketched out, but actually writing it out has been agonizingly slow, and the prospect of coding it makes me die a bit inside. Turns out the same disability that keeps me out of the work force hinders my ability to retain programming information, who would have thought!
Maybe NaNo will get me to finish this monstrosity hahaha who am i kidding.
…This would be more coherent if I had a better idea of what to put in an OP.
